"Charles Dickens at 200," the bicentennial exhibition at New York City's Morgan Library, opened last week. The New York Times reviews it here. Flavorwire has photos of some of the goodies on display, including an inscribed ink pot, manuscripts, photos, and book illustrations.

Love the part about the "walking race"! Too bad the display isn't coming to the West Coast, though...
And a bit off-topic, but today our English prof read an excerpt from one of Dickens's non-fic books--description of a ship in a storm. I'm not sure which book it is from, but it was really good. :)

It's funny you should say that -- just today I was reading the description of the ship in the storm in "Martin Chuzzlewit"! (Mark was so funny!)
